Pan Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has stated that the security challenges in the South East was orchestrated by the North of Nigeria in order perpetuate itself as President of Nigeria beyond 2023.
A press statement issued by Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, Secretary-General, Ohaneze Ndigbo stated that ; “They did it to Jonathan in 2015, so they exported violence to the South-East to keep Igbo leaders busy with insecurity challenges and set traps for them (Igbo leaders) to fall in and get arrested”.
“We are amazed at how someone who couldn’t remove a spark of dust in his eyelashes could see the remedy for the log of wood in the eyes of Ndigbo, the group said further, adding that “rhetorically, Wamakko’s assertion that Igbo leaders are behind the scenes motivating the violence in the South-East exposed the Northern secrets of supporting bandits and Boko Haram for economic and political reasons, the silence of Igbo leaders are Golden and will generate confusion in the camps of sponsors of terror in the South-East.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide had cautioned former Sokoto Governor, Aliyu Wamakko over impulsive comments without any iota of truth, which is capable of inciting ethnic cleansing and turmoil in the country.
“It’s laughable that the likes of Wamakko couldn’t proffer solutions to the insecurity challenges in the North for the last seven years, which the North incubated as a political instrument to oust power from former President Goodluck Jonathan and install the incumbent.”
